Webinar -Out of Africa

With regards to the FinTech revolution in Africa, we have to look at the growth of Continental African start-ups.  This burgeoning group are innovating in both product and servicing areas to address the gaps left by traditional financial service institutions.

The webinar promises to provide insights into a variety of key topics covering:

  • The contextual meaning behind data or lack thereof in Africa
  • Creating a sustainable ecosystem for African SME funding within a FinTech construct
  • “It’s about scoring” – alternative methods of financing, setting investor expectations, and mitigating risk
  • New models in credit risk assessment across all financial products: The key to unlocking greater uptake of mortgages, loans, insurance etc.
  • “Is our continent ready for new financial products?” How to meet the needs of various segments of African entrepreneurs: Micro insurance, payment systems, mobile money, insurance
  • Payments, BlockChain, BitCoin and digital currency – “what about it?”
  • “Culture meets Capital” How do the different cultural groups on the continent address their relationship with technology
  • “Bridging the Gap” – Increasing the flow of money across borders and the landscape of remittances.
